Bad luck mate,Sod knows why the mech ends up in the wheel but im sure there must be a law somewhere that covers this. :?
Law states- Slipping off chain must result in the maximum damage to cost ratio possible.Perhaps even a certain percentage of the cost of the chain versus the cost of everything broken 16.24:1 :lol: Not funny i know but these things happen.

I once forgot to replace the safety pins on a hope mono mini and because of that the pad securing pin fell out along with the pads.Bit of a surprise to say the least entering a busy junction slip road M8 roundabout at the height of the morning rush hour only to find the rear brake had suddenly failed :shock:
I was lucky that i was feathering the front and it must have been the pressure that kept them from falling out also.

Also dictates if no monetary damages done, your knees will hit the stem or your feet will come off the pedals in an unfashionable manner.
